Wheelchair Access at Cemaes Bay and Church Bay?

by June
(Yorkshire)

I have visited Anglesey many times and I know there is reasonable wheelchair access to the beaches at:


Rhoscolyn, Trearddur Bay, Benllech (sometimes - depends on sand level at bottom of ramp).

Traeth Bychan (near Moelfre) has great access when tide out due to hard packed sand.

I wonder whether you know about access to Cemaes Bay and Church Bay beaches?

It's often difficult to move around on the beach in a wheelchair of course, depends on the type of sand - Lligwy Bay for instance, lovely soft sand and IMPOSSIBLE for wheelchairs! But, if there is road or hard wide path access without steps or large rocks, that is a good start.

I'd be grateful for any information you could give.

Thank you.

June

Beach Wheelchair Access
by: Wil

Dear June

I went for a drive this afternoon up to the north east of Anglesey to check out the wheelchair access at both Church Bay and Cemaes Bay.

It's exactly as I suspected.

Church Bay - It's possible to get a small boat down to the beach with a bit of help from a handful of strong mates.

It's concreted quite well at the top but steep when it gets going. Near the bottom its sustained a bit of damage and would require a bit of careful manhandling.

I know nothing about helping people move about in wheelchairs; however, I wouldn't take a mate down there in a wheelchair unless there were four of us in attendance.

The beach is quite compact sand. Again, I state that I don't know if it's good enough to allow free movement of a wheelchair.

Cemaes Bay - An excellent promenade that'll take you along above the beach. It's nice enough.

Getting a wheelchair down to the beach is a bit of a palaver because there are narrow steps to be negotiated. Not too many steps and then - depending where you have a go - there a drop of about four inches or it's a foot closer to the village.

I hope that helps with your planning. Sorry to be offering limiting information.

Wil
